BREAKING: Verdict reached for ‘Killer Nanny’ in deaths of 2 children (VIDEO)


As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News offers the following information published by PIX11.COM:

MANHATTAN — Jurors found an Upper West Side nanny guilty on all counts Wednesday for killing two children who were under her care.

Yoselyn Ortega, 55, attacked 6-year-old Lucia Krim and her 2-year-old brother Leo, on Oct. 25, 2012, placing their bloodied bodies in a bathtub before their mother, Marina Krim, came home to discover the horrifying scene. Ortega also plunged a knife into her own neck in a failed suicide attempt.

The article goes on to state the following:

Jurors were tasked with deciding whether Ortega was too mentally ill to be held responsible for the killings.

New York has a high bar for the insanity defense and it is rarely successful. Ortega’s lawyers tried to prove that she was hearing voices from the devil — and didn’t know right from wrong at the time of the killings. That would’ve sent Ortega to a psychiatric facility instead of prison and could be discharged if doctors feel she is ready.

But jurors disagreed.
